Broken Hill - July 2010

For more shots of Broken Hill and surrounds see my Broken Hill Slideshow or Album.


In Broken Hill I stayed at the Caledonian B and B, a small, friendly place in a converted pub (a lot of old pubs have been converted to accommodation). It was inexpensive and well located in easy walking distance to the city centre with a couple of pubs with good bistros within one or two blocks. I also spent one night at the Lodge Outback Motel which is across the road from the Caledonian, slightly dearer as it is ensuite, and perfectly acceptable but lacks the atmosphere of the B and B.

I thoroughly enjoyed Broken Hill with its mix of mining history, outback desert scenery and art of various types. The range of architecture is fascinating as are the mining relics.
